Hi Shalini,

Thanks for writing your query.

Numbness and pain in your hand and foot can be due to decreased blood supply to that part.

In your case this may be due to low hemoglobin.

You should take measures to increase your hemoglobion.

Eat green leafy vegetables, jaggery, pomergranate, beet root in addition to fresh fruits and vegetables.

Also get a dose of de-worming done as parasitic infestation in the body can also result in low hemoglobin. Taking iron preparation under medical supervision wil also be beneficial.

You should get yourself examined by a Gynaecologist, if you are having more bleeding during mensturations.

Also get your urine examined for presence of any RBC.

I hope this is helpful to you.
